Community Workshop (Taller Comunitario)

Community Workshop (Taller Comunitario)

Help us make the city more walkable, bikeable, and transit-friendly for all!

Santa Ana is a vibrant community dedicated to building a safe and welcoming environment to live in, work in and visit. Over the past 10 years, city leaders have evolved Santa Ana’s infrastructure with mixed-use spaces and improved pedestrian safety.

Travel Safe, Share the Space is a public education, awareness and behavioral change campaign that responds to the challenges of pedestrian and bicyclist safety by encouraging residents and visitors to watch out for each other. The campaign shows that every day, each one of us one may be a driver, public transit rider, bicyclist or pedestrian. The best way to keep every traveller safe is collective prevention.

We want to build a culture in Santa Ana where all road users watch out for each other, and continue to create an environment where bicycling and walking are increasingly considered as safe and healthy modes of transportation.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Together with community partners such as OTS, we will continue to improve the safety of Santa Ana’s streets. http://www.ots.ca.gov/

2nd Saturday Artwalk: Hispanic Heritage Celebration

2:00 PM14:00

2nd Saturday Artwalk: Hispanic Heritage Celebration

In this lesson we will be creating a self-portrait in honor of El Maestro Emigdio Vasquez. We will study Proportion and Line using watercolors as our art medium.

Music: Manos de Fuego (drum specialty band) Emigdio Vasquez Jr.  (Son of renown Chicano Social Realism Master, Emigdio Vasquez http://www.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-me-emigdio-vasquez-20140815-story.html)

Art Vendors will be located throughout most areas of the mall.

Macy’s Court (4 vendors)

Food Court (4 vendors)

Center Corridor between Elevator (4 vendors) leading to the patio, and 2 vendors outside.

Art Exhibits: Emigdio Vasquez Tribute Rosemary Vasquez (also daughter of Emigdio Vasquez and wonderful visual artist.) I think that there is no better way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month than by Honoring Emigdio Vasques and having his successors as our guest artists.

This Chicano movement of art is more than relevant to Santa Ana as a city and community. I was a part of the event planning committee that hosted the Celebration of Emigdio’s life in 2013 when he was awarded the Maestro Award https://www.ocregister.com/2013/06/14/chicano-artist-to-receive-maestro-award-saturday/

Jane Bauman FloraBau

Fourth Element Gallery is pleased to present Jane Bauman’s FloraBau, opening August 4 and on view through August 24, 2018. The exhibition, a survey of work from Bauman’s series of the same name, features mixed media collage paintings that focus on the elements of desert droughts and drowning floods, highlighting their duality and raising to question the necessity of water as an “invaluable resource.” Through the manipulation of photographs—with mindful attention to juxtaposition and the altering presence of multiple layers of paint—Bauman’s work emphasizes the fact that nature is not a beast we can so easily tame. The exhibition coincides with the release of the 76-page full-color catalogue, FloraBau, which the artist will be signing at the opening reception.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

It’s just a jump to the left…

The Frida Cinema’s resident performance troupe K.A.O.S. returns on the second Friday of each month with their award-winning “shadow cast” of the immortal 1975 cult classic musical, The Rocky Horror Picture Show!

Sing and dance along to the journey of Brad and Janet, two virginal small-town lovers whose car breaks down in the shadows of a creepy old castle, home to faithful handyman Riff, his sister Magenta, tap-dancing Columbia, newborn Eddie, and of course, maniacal Dr. Frank-N-Furter!    

An adaptation of Richard O’Brien’s 1973 stage musical, director Jim (Don’t squeeze the…) Sharman’s cult classic stars Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon as sweethearts Brad and Janet, who find themselves at the doorstep of an eerie castle after they’re stuck with a flat tire during a storm.  There they discover an odd collective of “unconventional conventionalists,” there to witness transvestite scientist’s Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s latest creation – a muscular man named Rocky.  As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker Eddie (Meat Loaf), creepy butler Riff Raff (O’Brien himself), Riff Raff’s sister Magenta (Patricia Quinn), and tap-dancing Columbia (Nell Campbell). Sing-along (and shout-along!) to the 1975 classic that still packs houses almost 50 years since it’s release!

Our Rocky Horror shows get packed fast – pick up your tickets today at The Frida Cinema’s box office, or online at:
